Learning something new every day…

in Ayurveda, ECS Nepal, published, writing

ECS Nepal 185 Cover

This month’s issue is all about local methods of traditional healing, Ayurveda, herbal remedies and related issues.

Do you know what Ayurveda is? Well, I didn’t either – till I read this: Ayurveda: A Beginner’s Overview

Still not sure I get it completely, but 🙂

And I loved the travel piece by Jeremy Vestal about his trip to Jumla: Go West! Adventure Awaits!

The articles I personally enjoyed working on most were Nepali Medicine Man – which was just amazing, to see something that to me was right out of the past so fully alive today – and Wonders out of Waste, about two awesome sisters who run a paper recycling business.

Article on 3D printed prosthetics in The Kathmandu Post

in 3D printed prosthetics, published, writing

As my first byline in The Kathmandu Post, I’m glad that it’s also on a topic that means a lot to me and I believe also has the potential to matter for Nepal. I love the intersection of cutting edge science and practical applications for those who need it most.

News

in ECS Nepal, Food, published, writing

Ecs cover 183.indd

In early January I was offered the position of editor at ECS Nepal, the magazine I have contributed to for years as a freelance writer. It was a big surprise, but a good one. So far it’s been a crazy, hectic whirlwind of learning, hard work, and fun.

February’s magazine (above) is a special food issue, the first with my name on the masthead. It’s pretty funny it turned out that way, since food is the topic I’ve written about most for them over the years. The great group of people I work with did so much to make it happen on time in challenging circumstances and with a new editor taking over halfway through the process–I’m thrilled and honoured to be on the team.

Ghosts on Everest reprint

in Everest, Himalaya, published, writing

ECS Nepal published a reprint of my article Ghosts on Everest in their first post-earthquake issue (July/August) which came out this month. It’s something I wrote years ago and while I sincerely hope my writing has improved since then it’s an article that is still really close to my heart. It originally ran in their March 2011 issue, and they asked me edit it a little to tie it in with the hope that things there will soon be normal and people can do treks like the Everest Base Camp again. And unlike the Langtang area, which has been sadly devastated, it does seem that the Everest area is up and running–both for climbing and trekking–in time for this autumn’s tourist season. Now we just have to hope the tourists come. If you’re interested, the original article is archived here.

Serendipity

in daily life, published

I was travelling for a bit in July (more on that soon) and when I got back I had some trouble hunting down the issue of Fr!day that my last food review was printed in. Fr!day (or Friday) is a weekly publication that I’ve been doing regular restaurant reviews for, and the publisher was all out of copies.

While flipping through the daily newspapers and magazines yesterday at Dan Ran, a homey Japanese restaurant in Patan, I had the idea to ask if they had any Fr!day back issues. The waiter disappeared into a back room and returned brandishing a copy.

“We only have one,” he said apologetically.

Happily, it was the right one, and he had no problem with me keeping it.

Which is how I discovered that it’s the second time that I’ve had an article published in a magazine with Madan Krishna Shrestha and Hari Bhansa Acharya on the cover. This comedic duo, known locally as “MaHa” are without doubt Nepal’s most famous comedians, and have been for years now, since a comedy audio cassette tape they made together back in 1981. Since then they’ve moved into TV, film, and sell out live performances, and they somehow manage to touch on relevant and meaningful social issues in their humour, too.

The articles of mine in the two publications below were not related to them in any way, but it made me smile to see them on the covers, and honoured to share the space.
